Brighton striker Connolly delighted with Middlesbrough loan move

Brighton striker Aaron Connolly is delighted with his loan move to Middlesbrough.

Boro, who are seventh in the Championship table and on a six-game unbeaten run, have added the Galway native to their squad on loan for the rest of the season but Connolly knows it will be a battle to get game time.

"Hopefully I can get into the team. It's going to be tough to try and get into. If I do, hopefully I can help that momentum and keep going," said Connolly, who could make his debut for Boro in Saturday's FA Cup tie against Mansfield, if Brighton give Boro permission to use him in that competition.

“It's going to be tough. I'm not just going to come down from Brighton and expect to walk straight into the team.

"I'm here to help, first and foremost. Hopefully if I do get into the team then I can help with the winning run we've been on and I can help them push to the right end of the table."
